Now, I’m not Irish and nor do I really celebrate St Patrick’s Day, but if I have an excuse to do something a bit different with my make-up then you can bet your bottom dollar that I will take full advantage! This look is actually pretty toned down and much more wearable compared to those I have seen floating around the blogosphere today but my excuse is that I had to ensure it was work appropriate so I didn’t get any funny looks from my colleagues or worse yet, my boss!
- I began by priming my eyes using MAC’s Paint in Bare Canvas
- I then filled in my brows the usual way, using Sleek’s brow kit in Light on an angled brush
- I took MAC’s Soft Brown eyeshadow on a large fluffy blending brush, sweeping across the crease to use as a transition colour
- On the same brush, I took Green Gamin by MAC and also placed this in the crease using a fluffy blending brush
- To highlight the inner corner and brow bone, I took Urban Decay’s Bootycall on a flat shading brush
- On the inner third of the lid, I placed MAC’s Warm Chill eyeshadow as my first lid colour
- On the rest of the lid I took Urban Decay’s Homegrown eyeshadow on a MAC 242 brush, packing this on to ensure little fallout
- On a MAC 217, I took MAC’s Plumage eyeshadow and placed this directly on the outer third of the lid and blending into the crease
- Below the lashline, I used a small amount of Green Gamin on a pencil brush
- To finish off the look, I used gel eyeliner and a generous amount of mascara on top and bottom lashes
- I primed my face using Avon’s Magix Face Perfecter
- I then took Rimmel’s Wake Me Up foundation on a Sigma F80 and blended this onto my face
- As a concealer,I used Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind under my eyes and then set this area with Bare Minerals’ Well Rested setting powder
- To set the rest of my face, I used Ben Nye’s Banana Powder as usual
- I then bronzed my face using my trusty Bourjois bronzer which I have praised time and time again!
- Finally on the face, I used a Nars blusher in the shade Torrid
I kept the lips simple just adding a touch of lip balm
